    So if I want to make QOs to guys, do I make an actual salary offer now, or just say I want to "QO" them and the actual offer comes when we get to FA?

    Dola-

    Ok. I reread some things and I think I get the QO concept. But how exactly do I designate the guys I want to QO? Is it by PM? Or is there a page somewhere on the site to do it?

    And where can I find the super-secret owners' area? Or do I still not have access to it?

    All you need to do is say QO and for the length of time (3 years is the most common for non-aging players), as well as a legacy decision if applicable. The starting bid in BWD will automatically be 75% of the previous salary or 1M, whichever is greater. In other words, don't put the actual salary offer in at this point.

    And welcome aboard!!!

    Just reply to this thread for your QO's. And Simmsy is the one with the power to give you access to the owner's lounge. He should get to that soon.

    This should be taken care of now, for all of our new owners. (And the old ones, for that matter.)

    I didn't see if this was mentioned, but if you choose to take the legacy discount mentioned above (you have the choice after you win the auction), the player is untradeable for the length of the contract.

    For the newcomers, the BWD process can be confusing. Hell, it confuses me even now sometimes. I urge you to ask as many questions as it takes to get a feel for it, as well as perusing some other Contract Extension threads to get an idea of different strategies.

    Also, only trade with me. Never with Subby.

    I agree with Shaw on everything. Except that you should trade with me rather than him. Never Subby. Never Bruno.

    Yikes! The length of the contract? I thought it was only until the AS break. Who is it that we can't trade until the AS break? And which ones get the salary ending in "1"?

    The above post is only partly facetious. I just wanted to let KWhit and DD know that if they're feeling a bit confused and overwhelmed by the FA stuff, they're certainly not alone. I've been doing it for however many years we've been doing it this way, and I still can't remember what all the shit means most of the time. I just keep punching incrementally larger numbers into the FA software until the screen tells me I'm winning.

    The easy way to remember this is to click on the link labelled "constitution."

    And NEVER click on the link marked "constipation." I still regret that error in judgment.

    Sometimes constipation is good ... especially with all of the runs that the Green Bay pitching staff gave up last season

    I agree with Ron agreeing with Shaw. Except you should give me lots of money for the 3rd overall draft pick first, and then trade for Alva Fenton.

    Hehe...until I settle on a new name & logo, I've got to rock the old-school style. Also it's to put the fear into Cuervo that I'll be opening up a competing Vegas franchise.

    Just call the team Riverboat and you can cover a good portion of the country.

    Did anybody mention that any player signed in BWD (the first stage of free agency) is untradeable until the All-Star break?

    I was going to use the Sac & Fox Indian Reservation Victims of Chance, but I didn't think it would fit on a uniform.

    Can someone direct me to the appropriate additional downloads I need, such as a team logo pack?

    QO Question: How can I tell what a guy's current salary is, to determine how much his QO will be? I must be looking in the wrong places.

    Also, is there a link to the latest financials, so I can tell what my cap is and such?

    I refuse to read the constitution again. I'd rather just ask stoopid questions and have one of the lawyers explain it to me.

    Like I said in the other thread, the tank fines (fines/bonus column) aren't right yet, but should be later tonight. Rest of it is pretty much correct.
